As part of our Art curriculum, we are learning about different types of art and ways to express yourself. We are so grateful that artist Dawn Godfrey with “Mural, Mural On The Wall” shared her talents with us. What a fantastic hands-on learning experience for our Creative Tots!

This was the Creative Tots first art enrichment project of the year! We learned about Paul Klee’s love of bright colors and cats! We created our own buildings inspired by Klee’s Cityscape and the tots had some messy fun experimenting with chalk pastels!

The toddler class makes their own Kitty House.
Once finished with the chalk pastels we used tissue paper to blend the colors together.

We couldn’t forget Klee’s colorful sky’s!
We read the book, The Cat and the Bird: A Children’s Book Inspired by Paul Klee, written by Geraldine Elschner & Peggy Nille.
Paul Klee 1928 “Cat and Bird.”
The Pre-K and K-Prep class had a chance to interpret their own version of what the painting meant.
